Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beneath the Forsaken CityApril 3, 2016Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5BENEATH THE FORSAKEN CITY is just as thrilling as the first book, The Oath of the Brotherhood, and the ending was not at all predictable. I absolutely HAVE to read the next book in the series, The Sword and the Song, now. Parts of this were really, really frightening, and I couldn't put this book down at all.
I recommend reading the first book, The Oath of the Brotherhood, to understand what happens in BENEATH THE FORSAKEN CITY. This series doesn't stand alone. Great book, great series.
LalaAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Action Packed Fantasy!August 16, 2015LalaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Beneath the Forsaken City was a different read for me. I enjoyed seeing these characters again, even though it was a whirlwind of action in the beginning. It left me doubting if I would be happy for their upcoming journey.
It was through there journeys though that the Gospel message and truths were able to shine. It was amazing! I felt this was a deeper fantasy read that presented the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly throughout events Conor and Aine went through. I liked them both, but Conor blew me away in how he took a stand for his faith. He had a lot of regrets and was far from perfect, but he still held on to his faith and obeyed God, no matter the price.
Despite all the ongoing action, I didnt feel comfortable with all the talk of witchcraft. I know it was mentioned in the first book, but there were many more scenes where the dark magic played a big role with a certain character or two. I understand it was necessary, but I didnt necessarily agree with some of the description of its work.
This was a great action read with a powerful story of trusting God and demonstrating faith in uncertainty.

GenuineWithdrawal5 Stars Out Of 5Read the Glossary and You're Good!April 6, 2015GenuineWithdrawalQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Beneath the Forsaken City is the second book in a Celtic fantasy series. A wonderful fantasy series. I love all the elements of Celtic culture she has managed to incorporate into the books. I was so surprised by the idea, but it turned out just wonderfully. One problem with basing it on a Celtic culture is the fact that some of the names of things aren't really pronounceable just by looking at it. Take the time and familiarize yourself with the glossary, totally helpful in the long run.
This one is the sequel to Oath of the Brotherhood which is a MUST read before this one. Beneath the Forsaken City is a sequel is the strictest sense of the word. If you don't, it won't make any sense. If you read in order, you'll be able to pick up where you left off (almost exactly) and get right back into the action.
Speaking of action, if you don't like action you won't like this series. It is fast paced and never really slows down (sometimes I felt the need to put the book down for a moment and think about what was happening). Even if you don't reread, this is a book you'll finish and then pick back up so you can be sure you got everything. It is not a book to just be read in snatches, you need to sit down with it and lo-ove it.
This series is just so amazing, and I loved every single bit of it. Familiarize yourself with the map and glossary and have a blast!

Laureano in her new book Beneath the Forsaken City Book Two in The Song Of Seare series published by NavPress continues the adventure with Conor and Aine
From the back cover: A Storm on the Horizon.
A Brotherhood Scattered.
A Future Denied. Who will Stand Against the Darkness?
Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druids reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdius plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival. But at what cost? Will they learn to depend on Comdiu completely? Or will they give up hope?
In any good three act play the second act is always darker than the other two. Act One generally introduces everyone and gets the action going, Act Two is where the action really takes off and tit seems the bad guy has the upper hand and Act Three is where the hero rallies and wins the day. Beneath the Forsaken City is Book Two in the series and the action really takes off. The Red Druid is causing a reign of terror and they both know they are going to have to go back to Seare to stop him. Along the way they are separated and neither knows if the other is still alive or if they will ever be reunited. Ms. Laureano has given us a very exciting story filled with high drama. She has also given us plenty to think about as she shows us the need to press close to God for His support and His guidance. Great stuff! I am so looking forward to Book Three and seeing how this is all going to work out.

elinsmomAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Book Two on a Great SeriesFebruary 27, 2015elinsmomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleBeneath the Forsaken City is book Two in the Song of Seare series, and picks up where Oath of the Brotherhood picks up. You should definitely read book one first, or you will be hopelessly lost. This series follows Conor, a young prince, as he tries to save his world from the Red Druid. These books move quickly and have lots of action. I enjoyed this latest installment, and can't wait for the next book.
Beneath the Forsaken City has lots of twists and turns, and also good character development. There is some tension in the love story which is interesting. I would recommend this series for fantasy fans, and also for readers who are interested in trying fantasy. The books aren't very long, and the story is easy to follow.
I received this book for free from Tyndale for the purpose of review. (less)
